I was pleased to see Wendy was hosting FNSI this week. I'd had nearly 2 weeks away from my beloved sewing machine so was looking forward to the opportunity to sew and craft with others from around the globe.
Friday morning dawned, YD, who'd been staying for a couple of days, went home and I entered The Palace ready to get, set, sew!!
But - and we have a BIG BUT here - The Palace looked like a bomb had hit it.......I was sure it had been tidy at some stage but it certainly wasn't now. I knew I had a cutting table but couldn't find it. The easy option would have been to spend FNSI with hubby watching TV and doing some handwork but I took a deep breath and started cleaning, tidying, sorting.
There was the muddle on my sewing desk after clearing beautifully arranged blocks off the spare bed for YD's visit.
And even more muddle on my desk from when I shoved the original muddle over so YD could hook up to my printer.

There was the utter chaos on my cutting table from last minute sewing when I realised I had to leave home 2 days earlier than planned before visiting my son last week.
There was a pile of (mostly farm related) paperwork next to the computer that desperately needed attending to.
There was my spinning corner of the room to reorganise. The trouble with taking up a new hobby is that you need to store it somewhere.
|Believe it or not, this is after this corner had been tidied!!|

Here is another picture of it showing the blue edging ...thank you Kerry for
this gorgeous gift!)
